Does anyone know of anything that would cause us a problem at the dentist having a Shellfish/Fish allergy?

DD and I've never had any problems - I tell the dentist, but he's never seemed like it could be an issue.

DS - peanut, tree nut, milk, eggs, corn, soy, several meds, many environmentals. Finally back on Xolair!
DD - mystery anaphylaxis, shellfish.
DH - banana/avocado, aspirin.  Asthma.
Me - peanut, tree nut, shellfish, banana/avocado/latex,  some meds.

That's a pretty self-protective impulse as long as you're successfully managing to avoid those threats that seem rationally based, and talking yourself out of panic with those that aren't.  Great job!   :yes:
